"After we had loved each other intently, we heard notes tumbling together in late winter.
And we heard ice falling from the ends of twigs. The notes abandoned so much as they moved. The notes abandoned so much as they moved.
They are the food not eaten. The comfort not taken. The lies not spoken.
The music is my intention to you. The music is my attention to you. And when the music came again later in the day, I saw tears in your eyes. I saw you turn your face away so that the others would not see.
When men and women come together, how much they have to abandon. When men and women come together how much they have to abandon. Wrens make their nests of fancy threads and string ends. Animals abandon all their money every year. That’s my best line. Animals abandon all their money every year."
